And now we know why he didn't dare do this deal in his first term

The Hill reports that President Obama is having a little trouble with his Jewish donors over his sucking up to Iran (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
The timing of the pact set the stage for awkward moments at a scheduled Democratic fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., Monday night. Obama attended an event, hosted by Haim Saban, an Israeli-American media mogul.
Obama attacked the issue head-on, telling about 120 donors who paid $16,200 per person to attend the dinner at Saban’s sprawling estate that the agreement with Iran opens “the prospect that we’ll be able to, through peaceful, diplomatic means, remove this cloud that has hovered over the Middle East that had the potential and continues to have the potential of triggering a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region of the world.”
“It’s good for the United States, it’s good for our allies, it’s good for Israel,” he added.
“Because I’ve said, and I will repeat, that I don’t take any options off the table as commander in chief when it comes to the security of the United States or our allies.”
Saban drew applause when he told the donors, gathered in his back yard in a heated tent bathed in orange/gold light, according to a pool reporter, that "the president’s commitment to Israel’s security has never been stronger."
"And if the Iranians are at the negotiating table today, make no mistake about it, it is only as a result of President Obama’s resolve in striking down the most strict sanctions ever,” Saban added.
What a load of crap. The Senate forced Obama to accept sanctions he never wanted and now he's willingly frittering away their effect in exchange for nothing.

The post goes on to list some truly devastating comments from Jewish supporters, and to point out  Obama's former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who is likely to be a candidate in 2016, has not taken a position and is not likely to take one.

So help me, my head hurts on that one. When will the Jewish Demonrats wake up???? Especially the most wealthy ones who throw their money to Hussein, instead of helping Israel?
